Coal pit Lane

Recommended Posts

As most of my family appear to have lived around what is now Upperthorpe, Netherthorpe, through to the town centre along Solly Street and Townhead Street, I was hoping to find Coalpit Lane near there as I have a branch of my family living there.  I know roads ‘disappear’ over time and wondered which map I should look at to see if there ever existed Coalpit Lane in this area.  Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.  Thanks
